Rays Sternberg arranged for Montreal group leader to attend wild-card game

Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg arranged for the leader of the effort to bring baseball back to Montreal to attend Wednesday’s AL wild-card game.

And he didn’t think there was anything wrong with that.

Sternberg said that Montreal businessman Stephen Bronfman asked for tickets for himself and some colleagues, and the Rays, who are working on a plan to split future seasons in Montreal, were happy to help their potential future partners.

“When they asked us for tickets, they said they had been at Fenway last year (for the playoffs) and the same group had been at other ballgames in other years. So we said sure. I’m thrilled they want to be here,’’ Sternberg said before the game.

Can a billionaire like Bronfman really not be bothered to pay for tickets? Wait, don't answer that, this is America in 2019. Of course he doesn't pay for anything.

If nothing else, that'd truly do wonders for attendance in the part of the schedule that remains in St. Pete.
